The first items on Amazon's track list might give the impression that this is a collection of snippets of music. Unusually, the list is ordered by track length, beginning with the 54-second 'Abide with Me', building up to the final track 'Ba Lue Bolivar Ba Lues Are', which lasts over 13 minutes. My media player indicates a total of 9.9 hours playing time.

This revelation means that you don't get any sort of historical or thematic feel as you play through the tracks that you generally get with MP3s of multiple CD albums: Thelonius's solos are mixed up with recordings made with his Quartet, his Orchestra, Sonny Rollins, Gerry Mulligan, John Coltrane, etc. I find the tracks… Read more

4.0 out of 5 stars Good, but too short, 28 Mar 2012
Can't knock the quality of this, nor the speed of service, nor the low price. I took a gamble, but found it was only 1.2m long. Will give it to my grandson as a stethoscope.

4.0 out of 5 stars Bumper album, 26 May 2010
A fine selection of 14 songs from 'Kiss Me Kate' and 13 from 'Anything Goes'. Written on 3 staves, with lyrics and chord symbols. A couple include guitar tabs too. Keys from C to D-flat, for the intermediate piano player. These appear to be original scores, some dating back to 1934. Occasionally an archaic symbol crops up, like Ami.7, that almost goes unnoticed.

I've dropped it one star because the binding doesn't make it easy to support on the piano and turn the pages, but that's a complaint with most albums. The price is very reasonable for a collection like this.
